Small Talk: Out of Genoa

So, I have a story about this.

When hubs and I were in uni in TO we used to see LJB and he was amazing.

Then we moved to our current city. As a young PR person I had a job that involved getting celebs to do PSAs (that is a whole other story for another day).

We went to a sort of club, not a night club, but a venue, where John and Kathy were performing. Through some contacts they agreed to sit with us after the performance and talk about it. We had drinks.

Kathy was awesome! John agreed to do the PSA and we set it up that I would drive him to my guy who had a recording studio in his house. What I didn't know was that John (Long John) had been in a serious car accident before this, and was terrified to be in a car. I had a tiny Toyota Tercel that he barely fit into. Luckily, it was a Sunday and no traffic, but it was clear he was petrified to be in my car, and I was equally terrified that I was creating his terror.

We got to my producer's house and thankfully he just took over and put everyone at ease. John also had a very serious cold, so I wondered what we could accomplish.

Of course, he was a pro, and then we recorded amazing audio for our PSAs. I still cannot believe that he agreed to do this, let alone let me drive him to the studio.

Wonderful Day In The Life story about one of my favorite British singers, bannana. How long were you in PR?

For about five years but then I eventually got promoted to running the nonprofit I worked for.

LJB was so amazing, we saw him perform quite a few times and it was like he was on the B or C list at that time, so the venues were all quite intimate. Sigh, those were the days.

LJB was at the nexus of the 1960s British blues scene. The man played with or for everyone we consider classic British Rock. An amazing talent and generous spirit, whose influence lives on in present day UK Soul and R&B.

So great, thanks @Cupid Stunt.

Baldry, when performing, always told the story of how he discovered Rod Stewart who was busking at a train station. And I believe Rod Stewart also confirmed that story.

When I went to meet him after we met the first time (and before I drove him to the studio) it was in a bar on a Sunday, and the bar was closed. The doors were open and I saw the poster that Eartha Kitt would be performing that week(!). There was no one on the main floor so I went up the stairs. LJB and several men were seated around a board room table. 

A couple of the men took great delight in trying to razz me (young, blonde, they thought I was stupid). Baldry would have none of that. He said to meet downstairs.

I waited downstairs and then we sat around a table in the bar. One of the men was very vulgar, and I am sure I looked like a baby deer caught in the headlights. I was there to do a job, but I was also a hug fan of LJB. I did not expect to hear the things I heard that day. Baldry shut him down eventually.  He was lovely, as was everyone else, but that one guy, he really wanted to shock me and he did.

Just climbed out of that chasm with a full folder of video goodies. I'm the same way about KPop.

My mother has been a big fan of British Blues and R&B since she worked her first job at 16 in the record department of Wagner's Hardware Store (small town one-stop shopping). She has a huge collection of early 60's vinyl albums and 45s.

When my radio station was transitioning to digital, a ragtag group of pirate engineers 'appropriated' 4 analog record libraries, keeping them out of landfills; there was no market for 2nd hand vinyl in the 80s. 

Our LJB collection is very nearly complete.  His last record label, Stony Plain Records, is a quirky organization and not very good about promoting their older catalog, so we're missing several of LJBs early 90s original issues.

Well Steve and I are both exhausted. 

His vet visit took over 3 hours yesterday and cost me over $500 and that's not counting last week's visit. At one point, I had to wait for a barium x-ray and they told me to walk around for an hour. I just walked the residential streets until 6 PM while talking to my mom, came back and was told they still weren't ready, waited outside another 15 minutes before finally being led back in, and then had to sit in a closed room for another 15 minutes. 

Steve is... not dying, but not great. 

Basically his stools aren't normal. Too small, too narrow, and drying too quickly. A gram stain revealed he only has one type of bacteria in the stools which is also not normal. When asked what that meant exactly, the vet said that bacteria is eating all of the other bacteria and taking over, so a 14 day antibiotic regime begins. I also paid more to have them send off a culture of the stools to ensure we're using the proper antibiotic to treat the issue. 

The second, more concerning problem, is that he said even with the barium, the vet couldn't get a good view of Steve's gullet and that is unusual. Normally the gullet lights up super white on an x-ray. Steve's did not, and had some broken white spots but was mostly gray. What he thinks is going on, and he can only hypothesize, is that there is something in Steve's gullet that is not showing up on film. He thinks it might be fibers or plastics, but he suspect it's most likely fibers. I have a blanket I put over his cage at night and I think that *may* be the culprit. The fibers can't be removed, and because he's so small, they can't be viewed with an endoscopy. 

These fibers take up room in the stomach and as a result, Steve doesn't eat as much because he feels full. And even when he feels hungry, if he eats too much, he regurgitates. This results in a skinny bird. The suggestion was to take away any fibers, change his food to high potency (higher calorie content) and weigh him regularly.

I haven't weighed him yet today because he hasn't eaten much. I might start tomorrow. I also mixed in some high potency food pellets with his regular one but so far he's only picked at his treats.

Cupid Stunt thanks for posting the videos from the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest which I watched LIVE thanks to Peacock 😃!

I was absolutely shocked when it started and the auditorium was completely full of screaming fans with no masks, except for a few scenes backstage and definitely no six feet apart seating rules. 😮  I see lots of Covid 19 cases in the future for anyone that was there and unvaccinated.

I enjoyed hearing all 26 of the songs from countries competing.  Voting took forever when the countries' jury panels gave out their votes to their favorite country for 12 points. They couldn't vote for their own country.  The three countries which led  at the end of the first round of voting were 1) Switzerland 😃

2) France and 3) Malta.  Italy wasn't even in contention to win at this point.  I had a feeling that France might win especially when I heard last year's winner from the Netherlands sing what was a really moving and beautiful song.  France's song this year was very similar and I loved it!.

My favorite was Malta in third who was the favorite to win singing "Je le Casse" by Destiny, a female 4 persons of color group. 😍

Fans across Europe were voting and when all the votes from them were added into the first round the totals changed dramatically.  Countries that were not very good or way down in the competition jumped big time.  Malta didn't get as many votes from the fans and fell out of the Top 10 😧.  Switzerland had won most of the jury voting and they fell to 3rd.  France moved up to 2nd and Italy jumped from way at the bottom to be the winner🤢.  I had a bad feeling after they sang and the response from the crowd which was loud and crazy that they might win, but I absolutely HATED them.

Eurovision is impenetrable, untranslatable mayhem from this Left Coaster's couch. I love every minute of it. And since I don't entirely understand what I'm seeing and hearing, but I'm clicking my cha cha heels together and saying There's no place like Rome for the crazy St. Vitus gyrations in hair choreography snaking across the screen in smudged kohl guyliner and Russian Matryoshka doll costumes as the pyrotechnics singe the eyebrows off the first 10 rows of spectators. 

I actually expect the ceiling of the theatre to catch fire, as dayglo Spandex jumpsuits melt like hot fudge and the singers yodel that their national anthem will not go on without youuuuuuuuudle oooodle ooooooo! 

Seriously there's a lot of good talent under questionable production and fantastic production propping questionable talent. The criteria for talent nominations and competition voting escapes me, but I'm okay with that. It's all part of the Show.

Thanks for your take on the finals. I was partial to Malta too, but between winged Tix and Måneskin, they seemed to be media consensus favorites through out the contest.

Isn't she wonderful! MCC was smart to back away from Nashville and sign with a smaller label when she did. She didn't fit with songwriting committees and narrowcasting genres into Country Pop. She stayed true to her talent and skill, saved her voice and sanity. She still writes and records superior music, with touring forays into the wilderness for those that love her.

The Rotterdam Ahoy Arena (which was being used as a Covid field hospital this time last year) did look completely full, but it was actually only at 20% of capacity.  There were also very strict Covid measures in place.  The fans were allowed to remove their masks and forego social distancing once at their seats, but they went through a lot of screening before they got to that point.  

I thought they breezed through the voting in record time this year, because they only awarded the 12 points live.  In years past, every country awarded all of their points live (e.g., Spain's 3 points go to Cyprus, 4 points go to Denmark....8 points go to Serbia, etc.)  It used to take more than an hour tally all the votes!

I thought they did a great job with it all around.  And, yay Italy!

Well the news on Steve is there is no news on Steve. 

I haven't heard back from the vet regarding his cultures. I also had sent an email over a week ago with a photo of his toys and which were safe to give. Again, nothing but radio silence. The techs suggested removing all the toys until I heard back from the vet. 

Birds without toys can get bored and develop behavior issues including screaming and plucking. Steve was bored and starting to scream so I gave him back 4 toys, none with any cotton threads or ropes or fibers. He was still bored and mostly attacking the toys out of anger. 

So two days ago I gave him back his favourite toy. It's a stuffed tube filled with crinkly coloured paper. As soon as he saw it he started letting out little chirps. He then climbed out of his cage and stood on top of it where I had attached his toy. He started to hop along the top of the cage and bob his head. Then the wings started to move away from his body to form a heart shape from behind. And then he started to whistle and eventually sing to it with his forehead resting against it. It was really cute. I just hope it's safe to give to him. 

Steve finishes his antibiotics on Friday. I was supposed to go to my mom's last weekend to celebrate my birthday but that has been pushed back until this upcoming weekend. 

Steve starting being a bit more active around day 6 of his antibiotic treatment and has flown a couple of times since then. His weight is fluctuating around the 79-81 gram range.

I was worried about that. They don't usually come out in the day time unless they're sick. I didn't want George to catch anything!

Bat story:

Setting the stage:

One fine summer night, I was sitting in my bedroom comforting a dear friend who was having trouble with his crazy mom (we were both in high school). My dad was out of town and my mom was upstairs, asleep

Now to lay the land:

My parents house was U shaped with a courtyard in the middle. My room on the first floor, on the east side and my parents room was upstairs on the west side. I could see the upstairs windows from my room. 

The story:

So, my buddy and I are sitting there talking, smoking pot and being quiet, when I see the upstairs lights go on. "Hmm" I say to my friend "I better go check this out". So I go out through the house, across the entry, into the living room and say loudly "Mom! You OK?" and she says "I think there's something in the house." Alright, I go up the stairs and into her room, She 's stand there looking freaked out and I said I'd go take a look around. As I'm walking around, something flutters by my face. "Wow, the moths are really big this year" I go back up to my mom's room and tell her there's nothing down there. As I turn to go back downstairs, I see it. The bat is hanging from the paneled wall of the stairwell. "Eek!" I squeal and slam the door. We're wondering what the hell to do and I get the  bright idea to call the cops. I mean, I reason, they're up anyway, aren't they? 

In the meantime my friend has gotten curious. For some reason he decides to get on the roof of the detached garage. I guess he figured he could see into the upstairs from there. I saw him and frantically waved at him to get away but thought I was kidding or something so he stays put.

Mom calls the cops and pretty soon they show up. As they pull into the driveway, my pal, seeing them is horrified to think we called them on him so he leaps off the garage into the gully next to the house.

The cop, unfazed, comes to the front door and knocks. I lean out the upstairs window and inform him that there is no way in hell we're coming down to let him in and I throw him a towel. I explain to him my long, treasured, secret way to break into the French doors in the courtyard and off he goes, gun drawn.

He came in in, opened all the doors and windows, waved the towel around and said he was pretty sure the thing had flown away. He leaves and mom and I go down and close the doors and windows.

And that is the bat story.
